Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) June 24, 2011
Many people in the United States suffer from refractive vision errors. While some have already opted for long-term solutions such as PRK and Lasik surgery, others are still struggling with glasses and contact lenses. Lasik and other laser vision correction procedures are able to give the majority of patients 20/20 vision or better, and allow these patients to lessen their dependence on corrective lenses. However, many ophthalmic patients shy away from these solutions because of the high costs of Lasik and other laser eye surgery.
Recent studies have shown that having Lasik surgery can actually save patients money in the long run, over continuing to use corrective lenses that must be renewed often. On average, individuals pay $200 every other year on glasses, and $350 every other year on prescription sunglasses; this assumes that these people never have to replace lost, stolen, or broken frames. A person who chooses to wear contact lenses spends $40 each month on their corrective lenses. While the initial price of these temporary corrective lenses seem much smaller, the costs accumulate over a life time. An individual who chooses to have Lasik surgery at the age of 20 can save up to $48,000 in his or her lifetime. Even individuals who wait until their 40s can see the cost benefits of Lasik surgery. This procedure, or other similar procedures, can pay for themselves in approximately three years.
